Tristesse D’Automne (Mix)

Tristesse by Jenny Lynne

This mix was created especially for Headphone Commute.
Thanks to H_C for publishing it, and for the beautiful introduction words:

Autumn is here. Darkness slowly creeps up just a little bit earlier. Clouds get grayer and swell up with rain. Trees shed their colors and tighten their belts. And people begin to prepare for winter. But among all the shadows there’s a small ray of light. And with that glow comes the music… For today’s exclusive podcast, Peter van Cooten weaves in layers of haunting soundscapes spanning the gray-scale of the ambient universe. It’s a gorgeous soundtrack to the season of tears… I hope you will enjoy!

    Although it’s winter, this is capturing the Fall experience so very accurately. The seed of sound that this is placing into my mind early this morning is feeling rather nice. Peace.

  2. Paul Hauber (via Mixcloud) says:

    thanks for the music

  3. Paul Hauber (via Mixcloud) says:

    super sad and pretty

  4. Beau Lidden (via Mixcloud) says:

    This is an excellent mix…a ‘go-to’ for me when I’m trying to get through a lot of work and need something non-obtrusive.

    I *think* there’s a Boards of Canada sample at the 6:30 mark. Those distant, moving synth melodic lines. Super cool.

  5. komOPman (via Mixcloud) says:

    What a great set !!
    the intro with BOC c=Telepath was perfectly done Super! i .. Really enjoyed it greetings dannis

  6. AudioAggregation (via Mixcloud) says:

    Still loving this one!

  7. MyBlueElephant (via ThisIsMyJam) says:

    Great mix : we can hear the summer go and the autumn taking place little by little. Pas si triste… 😉

  8. RoryBore (via ThisIsMyJam) says:

    I think this is just perfect for a quiet hour by the fire after the kids are in bed tonight. Love.

    Thanks for sharing this lovely thing!

    Spotted ‘Telepath’ by Boards Of Canada at 6:30. excellent Jam as always. Thanks for sharing.

  14. DJam (via ThisIsMyJam) says:

    atmospheres aplenty!!

  15. Arnfinn Pettersen (via Facebook) says:

    It is a work of art in its own right.

  16. Well said Tim! However I almost found the mid section of the mix too disturbing. It created a really eerie tension relationship with my head. But when the release came (those lovely piano motifs especially) I felt calmed once again. A great mix from start to finish. 🙂

  17. I’m fresh back from my first solitary retreat. Not long, only 4 days but enough to get the taste of a mind by itself in the countryside with no distractions. ANYHOW… upon this pilgramage I confirmed what I suspected that this mix is in fact a GREAT WORK. I’ve been a fan and follower of the Headphone Commute and subsequently Peter van Cooten for a long time but this mix is a cut above. The selection, pace, cadence, juxtaposition, collage, transitions are exquisite. Prepare for a day in a rural log cabin, wait for the light to begin fading and immerse to this.

    The sweet, dark melancholia of late autumn has hit Oslo. This mix is the perfect soundtrack to it.

  27. Emitt Kyle (via H_C) says:

    woke up to a misty day, clouds engulfing the mountains I can see from my apartment window. Mountains and buildings all slowly disappearing, looking ghostly. Everything seems to move slower on days like these. This mix was perfect 😉
